I had no idea what Jacob's Pillow is. I thought we were going to see a dance performance involving pillows. Instead, we attended a phenomenal contemporary dance performance at a historic site that was instrumental in the Underground Railroad. Beautiful.

Every year we purchase tickets for Jacobs Pillow and are never disappointed, This time we came for a matinee and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful. While I am not an expert in modern dance seeing it in this setting is an absolute must.
